Rachel-RossCollection: “Tchaikovsky�s Swan”

My line was influenced by costumes and music from Swan Lake and concepts found in the Declaration of Independence: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This collection is my pursuit of happiness and exemplifies bold elegance, which is characteristic of my design style. The boned bodices are contrasted by lightly draped details and the garments are embellished with feathers, crystals, and embroidery by Volant Embroidered Art Studio. I experimented with silhouettes by spotlighting the shape of the female body as compared to the curves found in wings, resulting in illusions created with volume and sheer fabrics.
